How to Grow & Harvest Yarrow

 

When to Plant

Plant yarrow seeds anytime during the spring or autumn.

 

How to Plant

Choose a location that is sunny or lightly shaded. Yarrow makes a wonderful herb for landscaping.  It prefers a fairly rich, moist soil to grow in but can tolerate droughts for small periods of time. It can be a very forgiving variety to grow in your home garden. 

Stake your yarrow plants before the stems flop down towards the ground. Trim them back after each flowering to encourage new blooms.  

 

When to Harvest

The leaf of the yarrow plant is the most desired part.  Using a pair of scissors, snip off the flower heads.  Harvest them in late summer, and then dry on a large screen or in your dehydrator.   Harvest the flowers as soon as they become available.
